It all starts with. . .

A little invitation. . .

Tomorrow night is my annual holiday party. I love throwing this party, I have done it every year as long as I can remember except for two years ago when I had moved on December 1st and threw a Chinese New Years Party instead.

I love choosing the invitations, deciding on the wording, choosing appetizers, putting the list together and then watching it all come together. I have 17 different appetizers for tomorrow night. Most of them are fairly easy. Here is the list;

Stuffed Mushrooms

Ham Cream Cheese Balls*

Baked Brie

Little Sausages in BBQ Sauce

Cheese Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes*

Spicy Sausage Wonton Stars*

Spinach Cheese Pinwheels*

Pepperoni Rollups*

BBQ Chicken Bits*

Festive Cranberry Cakes*

Tortellini Appetizers*

Pickle Roll-ups

Confetti Cheese Balls

Creamy Green Onion Spread*

Cheese Spread Pinecone*

Warm Bacon Cheese Spread*

Baked Asparagus Dip*

I also have a few desserts/cookies, but since I don't bake, they are mainly store bought except for the mini cheesecakes a friend is bringing. I sent out 45 invites for 66 people all but three have RSVP'd and I have 47 confirmed, so it should be a good crowd. We also are going to be doing a $15 gift exchange which should be a lot of fun, I am planning on doing the dice game so it will be interesting to see what people come up with. I am sure there will be some fun pictures come Monday! Hope you all have a great weekend!

*I have the recipe for if you would like it.
